Cavaliers hope Smith can return to face Hornets

The Cavaliers hope to get a little healthier Saturday when they host the Charlotte Hornets. The only question now is what to do with DeAndre Liggins?

The Cavs are hopeful J.R. Smith can return to the starting lineup after missing the last two games with a hyperextended left knee. Liggins started in his place and played exceptionally well defensively, which just so happens to be one area of need on a Cavs team that easily loses focus on the defensive end.

Coach Tyronn Lue indicated after Friday's lopsided win against the Miami Heat that Liggins has done enough to remain in the rotation. Where exactly he fits, however, remains a mystery.
